Friendly Persuasion: Mediator Influence, Mediator Manipulation, or Mediator Coercion?
Presented by Sonoma County Bar Association
About the Event
From the moment they enter the picture, mediator influence the nature of the parties’ dispute. In this workshop we will examine the mediator’s conscious and unconscious use of persuasion- the predominant forms it takes, the effectiveness of each approach, the consequences for the parties and the mediator employing them. The presenters will also explore how counsel representing parties in mediation can recognize and address mediator coercion and how lawyers can employ persuasion most effectively in aid of their clients.
